Facts about Whales
Whales are cetaceans which are neither dolphins nor porpoises.
All cetaceans, including whales, dolphins and porpoises, are descendants of land-living mammals of the Artiodactyl order (even-toed ungulate animals).
In fact, whales are the closest living relatives of hippos; they evolved from a common ancestor at around 54 million years ago.
Whales apparently entered the water roughly 50 million years ago.
